Success! First time in, 5 minutes total, excluding cleaning of course. Just be aware of how thick the glue is and never insert the razor more than that far. Also, always tilt the blade up!

Will be getting another chip soon in all probability and this is the first thing I will do.

Impatience and negligence are definitely the two things to watch out for when you're delidding. It can be simple AND quick so long as you are careful and don't rush into it.

Failed other: Chickened out. Blade was too thick. Still looking for something thinner.

They had some thin one-sided razor blades in the painting section of my local hardware store (Home Depot)

First time was a success. I was so worried I was going to ruin the chip but it was so worth it.

First attempt success in 10 minutes, after all was said and done it was far easier than when I imagined! For those that want to make things easier get a blade that is a little more than two times thinner that the gap between the IHS and PCB, picture of blade below. You can find these blades at any drug store or pharmacy. The nice thing about these blades if they are not super stiff like the single sided blades, they flex to some degree so it will slice through that glue like butter!

Tried with those. Could not get it even go in 0.5mm. Could not get a 'grip'.

It's a very common item here in the States, it's actually for an older type of shaver that's been around for decades.

I am old enough to know that too ;p

But it seems they are not very common around here any more. I recall seeing them years back.

That's what everyone seems to be using - you should be okay with that thickness it just takes some patience

I'm hoping that first time 'round I'll be fine. As you can see my blade in the default picture (I guess that's what it's called?).
It worked on some OEM built Pentium 4's and a Celeron 326 and It was a success on that. (Can't check temps because I don't have a copy of XP)
